This past weekend, me and a couple of buddies made a run up the Poamoho Hele Loa and the Poamoho Ridge Trail. Permit was required, and we had permit in hand. We'd looked at having some friend be our support, to meet us at the end of the Hele Loa and run the last part, but that fell through (so we ran unsupported).
Good run, good route, good trail. This is a run worth doing. The last mile is not running; maybe an aggressive hike, but not running. We traded great running weather for lesser views from the top, but that was fine.
